23rd February











After a quiet time in the park, a trip to the inlaws in Norfolk was required, I drove up Wednesday morning. A Hawfinch close to the car at Lynford Arboretum saved a walk. At Cantley no Bean Geese but 3 Peregrines performed really well. At Stubb's Mill 10 Common Cranes, 30 Marsh Harriers, 2 Hen Harriers, 4 Merlins, 5 Barn Owls and 2 Chinese Water Deer showe from 4.00pm.
Thursday was rained off, so on the way home on Friday a lunch break at Salthouse produced a nice flock of Snow Buntings plus Glaucous Gull and Divers on the sea.

The best time of year to see Nuthatch in there park is during post breeding dispersal. But they are uncommon in the park. When I started 1 pair bred in the grounds of the American Ambassador. That was when we had the last of the Elms still standing. The best places to look are where there are any Enlgish Oaks, the area between the canal and the running track, looks ideal. It is how ever an area that I do not visit that often.
